McCorry takes over in Mourne County
JIM McCORRY has been appointed as the new Down senior football manager.
McCorry, manager of Down county champions Kilcoo, replaces James McCartan whose five-year reign came to an end after the Mourne County were beaten by Kildare in the All-Ireland qualifiers this summer.
The former Armagh footballer was confirmed by the county board last night.
Current St Brigid's manager, Tony McEntee, is believed to have turned down advances for the post.
